Bob Dylan Sings Cy Coleman

dylan john shearer wide bfb46d4dacac0e52eacd363bd5ef40a5aa013d89 s1500 c85 1024x575 Bob Dylan Sings Cy ColemanHappy Release Day! Columbia Records brings you the latest from Bob Dylan, his first triple album. “Because as Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker and countless others knew, the concise songs of the Songbook era are magical self-renewing energy systems. In the space of just 32 measures, less than a minute, they lay out an idea or narrative, develop it, take it into a different tonality for the new perpective, and return home in a way that makes listeners want to take the ride again” – NPR.

Featuring classics by composers Cy Coleman (“The Best is Yet To Come“), Hoagy Carmichael (“Stardust”), Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather”), Triplicate moves with great reverence and Dylan sings these at close range and at human scale. Read more HERE!

Rosanne Cash – Blue Moon With Heartache

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s stunner of a top tune was the third single from Rosanne Cash‘s trailblazing 1981 album Seven Year Ache and her third #1 country hit. The single spent a total of 11 weeks on the chart.

In Rolling Stone‘s 50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own, Cash “conceived her niche as post-pub-rock and borderline New Wave, at least in the sense of Tom Petty and Steve Forbert, whose material she interprets”. The musicians and singers on this album are a who’s who of American roots music and include: Tony Brown, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Booker T. Jones, Albert Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Mickey Raphael, Hank DeVito, and Emory Gordy Jr. Check out this amazing clip from 1982!

Rosanne Cash – If You Change Your Mind

(click song title above to listen)

It was this week back in 1988 when Rosanne Cash scored her ninth #1 on the country chart with “If You Change Your Mind” from her pioneering lp King’s Record Shop.

The tune was co-written with pedal steel guitarist Hank DeVito of Hot Band fame and spent a total fifteen weeks on the chart!

King’s Record Shop would produce four #1 singles in all and is “Rosanne Cash’s classic, a work that transcends production and songwriting styles and the pop and country music of the time”. Thom Jurek, Allmusic Guide.

The Electric Flag – Sunny

(click song title above to listen)

Hey folks, summer is upon us so it feels like it’s about that time for another stellar take on the Bobby Hebb classic tune we love so much…SUNNY!

This week it’s none other than Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Paul Butterfield Blues band alumn, Blues Hall of Fame member, Northside of Chicago’s own scorching guitarist and composer, Mike Bloomfield. Bloomfield was discovered by legendary Columbia Records producer and talent scout John Hammond kicking around blues clubs with Paul Butterfield and Elvin Bishop in the early 1960s. He soon after gained wide recognition for his work as a session musician, particularly with Bob Dylan for his work on Highway 61 Revisited.

Bloomfield relocated to San Francisco and formed the short-lived Electric Flag in 1967. The Flag debuted at the 1967 Monterey Pop Fest and released A Long Time Comin’ in 1968 reaching #31 on Billboard’s Pop Albums chart. Sunny one so true, we love you.

Happy Summer everybody!
